3 Success Tips to Aspiring Entrepreneurs

As some of you may know, I’m in Toronto for the next few weeks. Yesterday, as I was on the plane to Montréal I had the chance to sit next to a lecturer who teaches entrepreneurship at one of London’s business schools. I’m always thirsty for knowledges and couldn’t help but grab the opportunity to learn from someone who has worked with some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the UK.

I asked: What are the three things you would say to an aspiring entrepreneur? You’ll be surprised by his answers:

Why you need to wear ‘multiple hats’ to succeed

Without knowing it, we all wear multiple hats. I am an entrepreneur, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a colleague. We always juggle between the different roles of our lives.

Why artists should embrace who they are

Having lived and worked with multiple artists, I now realize how difficult it is for them to find the right balance between their social life and their art. If you wake up in the morning and all you can think about is writing and playing music, know that you’re not alone. If, when someone ask you ‘What do you do for fun’ the first thing that comes to your mind is being in the studio creating music, know that it is a beautiful thing and you shouldn’t feel bad, the way you are is a blessing.
